RackBrute 3U is a comprehensive Eurorack housing, transport, and protection solution. Featuring configurable positions, dependable power supply, and maximum practicality, you can be assured your precious modules will be well guarded.

Modular gear is a precious commodity, and you need a versatile housing and security system to accommodate them. A first glance, youll see that this is a perfectly fitted 3U, 88 HP case made of a light but strong aluminium chassis, fitted with wood side panels. Deceptively simple, RackBrute is far more than a simple box. It includes many smart additions, such as the included +12V / -12V / +5V power supply that ensures that keeps everything up and running, and the multi-position handle system that not only lets you carry your collection with ease, but also lets you deploy an optimal operating angle, whatever your preference.

In addition to keeping your modules safe and secure, RackBrute 3U gives you total control of the situation, no matter the context. The first of its secret weapons is the Link fastening system. Paired with the included handle, it will let you choose one of several configurations and orientations for your modular arsenal. Whether you want your gear stealthy and prone, or standing to attention, RackBrute is at your command.

The second trick up its sleeve is the stalwart, ever-reliable, power supply module. Including two independent circuits to supply common modular voltages, it will more than cover your need for +12V, -12V and +5V, providing up to 1600mA in total. Thirdly, its robust power rail includes a sophisticated noise-filtering technology, and provides 20 standard slots to leave plenty of space for your collection.

The included Link fastening system not only equips the RackBrute 3U, but also its large-calibre sibling, RackBrute 6U as well the MiniBrute 2 and MiniBrute 2S. No matter the combination you go for, you can make the most out of your extensive module collection, or create a powerful EcoSystem with the extensive CV/Gate connectivity of the MiniBrute 2 and 2S. Its also worth noting that although this technology comes straight from the top secret Arturia research labs, they are working for the greater good. The Link system is patent-free, so you can expect more and more Link-enhanced equipment to become available in the near future.

With RackBrute 3U, you have nothing to fear: from the handle, all the way to the threaded nut strips, youll find strong aluminium and steel. Wherever you go, however long your journey, however heavy your setup, RackBrute was built to last. Even transporting two RackBrutes or a RackBrute and a MiniBrute 2 is totally risk-free thanks to the built-in Spacers, eliminating any chance of collision.

Store Information


When you shop at Mannys you don’t just get the gear, you get the knowledge and expertise of 25 years of experience as one of Australia’s most influential independent music retailers.

In the beginning…

After managing the Allan’s city store for 10 years, an ambitious Manny Gauci-Seddon decided to open his own music store. He wanted his shop to uphold the values of true support and after-sales service, and to form genuine ongoing relationships with his customer base. The trends of the industry at that time were pointing to more of a disposable, corporate mentality and so in the early years he set out to make a name for himself as a serious independent alternative.

The first store was a funky shop in Smith Street, Collingwood in 1991. By 1998 Manny had outgrown this store and saw the need to focus more on the upcoming computer based recording revolution. He established an address in Johnson St Fitzroy as the arts were booming on the north side of the city. In the same year the opportunity came to acquire a business on Chapel St – the Revolver Music Gallery. With a two store operation Manny was now making the difference he set out to 7 years earlier. The Mannys brand was known for knowledge and service, with the staff greatly sought after for their experience. Unlike the other major players, the focus was not just on sales but also on the process of making music.

When the opportunity came to consolidate into one superstore, the North Fitzroy address seemed perfect for the move. Manny wanted to expand his customer base to include more of the musicians turning to the internet due to the lacklustre service of his competitors. He took the best from both stores and moved his operation to the hub of music and musicians just north of the city.

In November 2016 Mannys was sold to SoundBay Pty Ltd, the operator of Australia’s largest DJ and production retailer, Store DJ. While the essence of Mannys Music will always exist, our mission for Mannys Music moving forward is to ensure that we continue to build the ultimate experience for our customers online or in store. Our sales staff remain knowledgeable, professional musicians first and sales people second. Mannys Music gives you one hub to purchase all of your gear, and if we don’t have it, we’ll try our hardest to get it for you.

Mannys – The best advice you can give a musician.
